Risk Focus, a consulting firm providing specialized business domain and technology implementations, announces the opening of their new Toronto Office. The office is located just outside the city in Oakville, ON and will house a highly technical team focusing on DevOps and Business Transformations, as well as Risk and Trade Solutions for Financial Services.
Though establishing a physical presence in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is new to Risk Focus, the company has worked in Toronto’s Financial District for most of this decade, with an emphasis since 2013 on helping firms drive Business Transformations into the Cloud and proper DevOps practices. Establishing a local presence reflects a commitment to growth in the area, both in terms of expertise and client base.
Over the last several years Toronto has become a mecca for Technology and IT Professionals. With large technical juggernauts moving into the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and the Universities continuing to educate, develop and feed Silicon Valley with quality developers, it makes Toronto a logical destination for Risk Focus.
Karl Kerba, the new Head of the Toronto DevOps Solutions is a native Torontonian, as are several other members of the growing Toronto team. The team will work directly with the Head of DevOps for the firm, Peter Meulbroek. Both Peter, and the entire Risk Focus leadership believes in the community, its innovative culture, deep talent pool and growth opportunities, and expects the company to have a bright future here.
Toronto is an exceptional place to live and work. It ranks as the 7th most liveable city in the world based on The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveability Index, which considers five parameters to rank a city’s living condition: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure.
“We’re here because Toronto has so much to offer. In addition to all those things that make it an eminently liveable city, an immense level of talent exists within the GTA. We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Risk Focus to this dynamic tech hot spot,” said Kerba.
Risk Focus, founded in 2004, has established an international presence stemming out from their head office in New York City. Their offices span globally – London, Frankfurt, Riga and recently opening a Development Center in Pittsburgh (August) and now in Toronto.
